Abby Krstulic, Volunteer manager for Habitat for Humanity, will highlight volunteer opportunities during RCFC's Evening meeting, Wednesday at 5:30 via Zoom.  New Rotarians will also be inducted.  All are invited - Zoom link below.
Last week, Dr Peter Brown continued RCFC's focus on the environment with his presentation entitled Wildfires on the Colorado Front Range-What the Trees Can Tell Us.  Dr Brown’s area of expertise is Dendrochronology but his talk was more about the changing picture of wildfires in the American West.  The “takeaway” was provided early - “Fire is Inevitable” the only questions are – When and what kind?  
The Community Grants committee recently awarded three Arts and Culture grants for a total of $6,000.  Featured this week is the last of those grants.  
 
Partnership for Age-Friendly Communities in Larimer County received a $2,500 grant to expand and develop their Sound Affects’ pilot program.  The program offers access to quality music programs for underserved senior care communities.  These are your RCFC Charitable contributions at work!  Hanna Brown, Program Manager and Lorye McLeod accepted our check from Kathy Nicol.
